With the price of oil and other traditional fuel sources constantly on the rise, Quadrafire pellet stoves
provide consumers with a way to save money
while efficiently heating their home
. With lower heating costs and big tax credits available, many people are making the switch and choosing to warm their homes in a greener way.
The following information can help you understand the basics of using a pellet stove
to heat your home and how it can benefit you in a variety of ways.
These types of stoves are an environmentally friendly
alternative to traditional wood or oil burning stoves, as well as central heating systems. A pellet stove utilizes pellets
made from biomass and agricultural waste materials such as wood chips, sawdust, grass, corn, wheat and sunflower seeds. Replacing traditional fireplaces that could not heat a home efficiently, a these devices have a thermostat to distribute heat evenly and well. Stoves
hold enough fuel to cover several days and cleaning them is as simple as emptying a tray.
Since these products
run off of bio material, there are less air particulate and greenhouse emissions, making them safer
for the environment and your health. The ongoing reduction in the amount of oil and other fossil fuels you use thanks to pellet stoves
is also better for the environment. The products these pellets
are made out of are given a second life when they are recycled into a fuel source for your home.
One of the best reasons to switch to a pellet stove
now is the money you can get from government tax credits for installing a 75 percent efficient product
, part of the government's plan to encourage consumers to choose green. You can earn up to $1,500 that will cover 30 percent of the cost of the actual product, the installation and also the piping required. This can make the purchase of a product much more affordable, but the tax credits are only available for a limited time. Contact us today
